Adam Tompkins has joined the NC State University Poole College of Management’s marketing and media relations team as content development specialist for NC State Executive Education and the Supply Chain Resource Cooperative (SCRC), both based in Poole College.
In this new role, Tompkins is developing and managing marketing communications and creative content for both organizations. This includes print, digital and web-based channels.
“Poole College’s active engagement with industry supports our efforts to provide students with practical, applied learning experiences that enable them to see the direct correlation between their contributions and the company’s performance. Adam will be helping to tell that story,” said Richard Warr, Poole College’s interim associate dean for faculty and academic affairs and professor of finance.
Tompkins comes to the college with significant prior marketing and communications experience. After completing a marketing internship with Oxford University Press, he was a business and marketing instructor for the Wake County Public School System for three years and a freelance digital marketer and writer.
He then worked at Duke University, providing a wide range of communications services, including writing for newsletters, websites, social media and brand awareness campaigns, as well as alumni engagement programs.
His new role brings Tompkins back to his alma mater; he received his bachelor’s degree from NC State in 2013, in business administration with a concentration in marketing.
